Animal Testing should sometimes be allowed. Animal Testing is justified for reason 1 or reason2,but never reason 3.
First,animal testing should be allowed for reason 1 because animal testing has contributed to many lifesaving cures and treatments. The California Biomedical Research Association states that every medical breakthrough in the last 100 years has resulted directly from research using animals.
Second,animal testing should also be allowed for reason 2 because there is no adequate alternative to testing on a living wholebody system. Living systems like human beings and animals are extremely complex. Studying cell cultures in a petri dish, while sometimes useful, does not provide the opportunity to study interrelated process occurring in the central nervous system,endocrine system,and immune system.
However,animal testing should never be allowed for reason 3 because reason 3 says animals are different than humans but they actually aren’t because animals have a brain just like us and legs,organs,arms,hands,feet,etc. so it is not poor to test animals with products that we will use cause if it is safe on the animal then it is safe on us.
In conclusion, although we should never test animals for reason 3 testing animals for reason 1 and for reason 2 is justified.
